Subfile Control Record Deleted when Subfile Record is Deleted
In RDP 8.0.3: Using the "Design page screen controls" in Screen Designer to edit a screen, removing a subfile record removes that subfile's control record, even if not selected. It appears at least two scenarios display this behavior: 1. Using "Design screens" and removing a subfile record from the "Included" list; 2. Using "Design records" and deleting a subfile record.
Fortunately, in the first scenario, a <Ctrl>-Z (undo) restores the control record; another <Ctrl>-Z restores the subfile record. This implies that there are two separate actions being taken by RDP, despite the user performing just one action. It's like it has a mind of its own! ;-)
Unfortunately, in the second scenario, <Ctrl>-Z does NOT restore either record.
If this is "by design", I respectfully request this functionality, or at least its implementation, be reconsidered!
1. In RSE, right-click a screen file which contains a subfile, a control record, and at least one other record. Select "Open With > Screen Designer". 2. Choose the "Design" view (tab at bottom of window), make sure the "Design page screen controls" (top of window ) is open, select the "Design screens" radio button and the "Records" tab. 3. Highlight a subfile record under the "Included" column, then click the "Remove" button. 4. In addition to the selected subfile record being removed, its associated control record is also removed.
